PS I’ve just posted details on our website about a Lottery funding information session with Vaughan Gething AM this Friday, 2 March – take a look.
Read about the “exciting programme that has the potential to provide a huge sum of investment to third sector organisations across Cardiff and the Vale.”
We’re looking for 30 representatives to make sure our sector is represented on the Integrated Partnership Board. Are you interested?
If there's a demand, we could put together a half-day seminar to answer your questions about Welsh language policies.
‘Making Assets Work’, ‘Child Protection/Safeguarding’, ‘Charity Annual Accounts and Audit’ – there’s still time to book.
